Cavani: I could leave PSG

The former Napoli star has voiced his frustration with his role as a wide player and has hinted at a potential summer exit

Edinson Cavani has suggested he could leave Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the season as he is unhappy with his current role with the Ligue 1 champions.

The Uruguay international has mainly been used out wide since joining the club from Napoli in the summer of 2013, with head coach Laurent Blanc preferring Zlatan Ibrahimovic as his central striker.

Clubs such as Manchester United and Juventus have been said to be closely monitoring Cavani’s situation at PSG and the 28-year-old has now made it clear that there is no guarantee he will stay put.

“I don’t know whether I will stay at PSG. I might stay, I might leave… You never know what will happen in football,” Cavani told GQ.

“When I arrived at PSG, I was forced to play on the wing. People don’t understand how much that has influenced my performances. I would score a lot more if I was played as a striker.

“I want to play as a striker. I would without a doubt do much better in my own position.”

Cavani would not be available on the cheap even if he attempted to force through a transfer.

The attacker has a contract with the Parc des Princes side until June 2018 and club president Nasser Al Khelaifi claimed last month that they would not even consider a potential €50 million offer.
